How Dedicated Servers Work

When we speak of web hosting servers, there are 3 main categories - shared hosting servers, VPS (private virtual web hosting servers) and dedicated servers. Shared hosting servers host multiple clients and thus the resources per hosting account are limited, virtual private server packages offer more server configuration freedom, but also affect other VPSs on the hardware node if utilized unwisely, and dedicated servers offer you the independence to perform everything you choose without interfering with anyone else.

Why would you need a dedicated server?

Dedicated servers are generally much more high-priced than shared web hosting servers or VPSs. Why would anyone, then, use them? The reply is rather simple. If your company has a popular web site, or simply has very specific web server configuration requirements, the most intelligent choice would be a dedicated server. For someone who is willing to invest in safety and reliability, the bigger price is of no concern. You acquire full root-level access and can use 100 percent of the hosting server's system resources without anyone else sharing these system resources and interfering with your sites.

Hardware specifications

The majority of shared hosting firms, incl. us at CBRG Digital Hosting, offer several different hardware configurations you can select from in consonance with your necessities. The hardware configurations include different kinds of processors, a different amount of cores, different RAM and server hard disk drive sizes and different bandwidth quotas. You can pick a hosting Control Panel, which is a convenient interface if you want to utilize the dedicated hosting server for website hosting purposes solely and choose not to use an SSH client for all the changes you will be making. We offer 3 kinds of Control Panel software - Hepsia, DirectAdmin and cPanel.

The web hosting CP of your choosing

If you are a self-reliant Linux user (our dedicated web hosting servers are powered by Linux or other Unix-based OSs), you could administer your dedicated server through an SSH console only. That, though, could be inconvenient, especially if you wish to give complete server root access to somebody else who has less technical expertise than yourself. That is why having hosting CP software activated is a clever idea. The Hepsia web hosting CP user interface that we provide does not offer full root access and is mostly suitable for somebody who has many websites that demand a lot of system resources, but wants to manage the websites, databases and email accounts through a user-friendly hosting Control Panel. The DirectAdmin and cPanel web hosting CPs, on the other hand, grant full root privileges and have three levels of access - root, reseller and user. If you plan to resell hosting accounts rather than utilizing the dedicated web hosting server only for yourself, you should pick one of these two.

Web server monitoring and backup procedures

Last but not least, there is the matter of monitoring the dedicated server and of backing it up. In case of a problem with your web hosting server, like a non-responsive Apache or an outage, it is good to have some sort of monitoring system enabled. Here at CBRG Digital Hosting the system administrators monitor all dedicated servers for ping timeouts, and, if you order a Managed Services upgrade, they monitor the separate services on the dedicated server too. Backups are also a bonus option - the web hosting company offers you data backups on our own backup web servers. You could pick a type of RAID that would permit you to keep the same data on 2 server hard disk drives as a protective measure in case of a disk drive failure, or in case someone whom you have ranted root privileges erases something unintentionally.
